The absolute perfect traditional Easter dress

Fits very flatteringly adding the illusion of a waist to a straight figure and with a forgiving cut that doesn't run too tight. Very comfortable and lots of compliments.

Perfect wedding shower dress

I absolutely love everything about this stress if it was a great fit correctly and all the right places. I really like that it was stealing because it made me feel a little bit more classy. The colors are beautiful and very spring. For reference I wear a size 12/14 I am 5 foot six without heels and I wear a size 38G bra. No complaints For the dress.

My son received his PharmD. Pretty awesome!

This dress is pretty! That's the best word to describe it. I got it as a back up for my son's wedding but decided it was too bridal and wore it for his graduation ceremony and also to work one day. Very well constructed. Between the lining and the lace, the dress is heavy. I would not want to wear it to a humid summer event unless AC is guaranteed 100% of the time. It is not my typically style but it looked so pretty in the pics that I decided to give it a look and was glad I did. Con, you need to be careful not to snag the embroidered appliques on the lace. Choose jewelry carefully and watch out for things the could catch on it.

Beautiful Dress

The fit was fantastic but I like to wear my clothes snug. So if your in between sizes and you don't like snug fit clothes, I'd recommend you order a size up!

The style and fit was amazing for my body type. The color is beautiful. Had so many compliments.

The dress has a great length past the knee. It was a little tight on my busy area but not too bad overall. The color and style is beautiful. I will definitely rent again.

Great length, ability to wear a real bra, and not restricting.

I thought this one had great potential for a fun June wedding, but my husband thought it looked wrinkly in the preview and in person, but in reality it is a lace dress with embroidered flowers. . I typically wear dress 12, pants 12/14 - I fit the bottom half of this dress great. Surprisingly I did not fill out the top, it's baggy at the armpit and upper chest.

So flattering but cheap zipper!

This is a gorgeous flattering dress that is easy to be confident in. I would only say that the zipper was really cheap and got stuck a lot.

Feminine long dress

I loved this dress. It was super springy and feminine and a great length for tall women (I'm 5'10"). I would not recommend for my shorter female friends. Wore it too a conference and got a ton of compliments. Because of the thicker material and lace it really hides any problem areas.

Different style, but good overall.

I liked that it was different, good for the season. A little long for a 5'2 person, but good for an after work, work event at the Chamber of Commerce.

Runs just a little small. Gorgeous dress. Recommend upsizing.

Really beautiful fitted dress. Was a little tight across the ribs so would recommend sizing up by one. Highly recommend!

Flea market frump.

If you are into dowdy old looking yellowed table cloth lace then this is the dress for you. Otherwise skip! Did not end up wearing - not sure I could ever feel good in this dress. Believe the reviewer who said the it is far too matronly. As for fit… I am usually a size 4 and the XS did fit nicely - just couldn't go for the look, cheap old fabric. Unfortunately the dress also arrived with a tear in the back slit and zipper was too hard to pull up. Bummer! But the good news is this is the only total flop I have ever received from RTR.

Adorable! I may not send this back. Very tight, more of a work party dress than a sitting at my desk all day dress.

Great dress. Very unique!!

Fun dress. Very unique. Kind of has an antique look to it. Good for work or social event. Bust fits tight and not much give due to the fabric. Will rent again.

Stunning lace

Such a stunning and classy dress. Wore to work and got a million compliments! Love the length. I'm 5'8" and 143 lbs and the medium was perfect. It is so much more beautiful in person. The pictures do not do it justice.

Nice Material

This is a beautifully constructed dress, nice fabric and lace trim. Unfortunately, it did not fit my two-month postpartum shape. Once I lose more of the baby weight, I'd definitely rent this again.

Fitted flowery sheath

I liked the dress. Perfect to dress up for a wedding or to the office. Perfect length. A little tight around the arms and chest area. I am 5'6. 135, and the small fit perfect. Simple, average rental. Will rent again.
